A fresh harvest of Red Radish ...
A fresh bounty of red radishes landed straight from the fields to my kitchen...Thanks to a friend who gave me a bunch of the fresh roots from her farm. The veggie loving SD being away, I wasnt too keen on cooking up anything elaborate.....
And hence this simplest of simple salads....
Small Red Radish - 5-6
Cucumber - 1 medium sized
Olive Oil - 1 -1.5 tsp
Lemon Juice - 1 lemon
Sugar - 1/2 tsp
Chili flakes - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
1. Wash the radishes and scrub them. Trim the top and tip of the radish. You may peel the skin...I did not.
2. Wash and peel the cucumber
3. Slice the cucumber and radishes very thin.
5. Add the olive oil, sugar, salt, chili flakes and squeeze the juice of lemon into the sliced radish-cucumber. Toss them well.
6.Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves.
Enjoy the freshness!
